I posetd this at linuxquestions.org and someone suggested I come here. So I'll try asking here.

Hi folks,

I'm wondering if it's possible to configure Squid (and a browser) so that the client makes the connection to the proxy over HTTPS even though the final web server connection is only HTTP.

I would like to run a proxy server on my linux box at home and then use that as a proxy from work or other places. But my ISP seems to block incoming HTTP connections. HTTPS connections are not blocked.

So to get around this, can I configure squid (or even a browser for that matter) to connect with something like:
Browser client => HTTPS => squid proxy => HTTP => normal-non-ssl-site.


This is my distro, though I don't think this is relevant. Please move as appropriate thanks.

# cat /etc/redhat-release

Thanks for any help.
